Swimming pools are a great way to relax and entertain during the warm summer months. The city provides advice to swimming pool owners so they can ensure their pool complies with Australian Standards.

Pools installed prior to 5 November 2001 are required to have:

  • barriers to restrict access to the pool
  • gates that are self-closing and swing away from the pool
  • restricted openings on doors and windows that open into the pool that comply with the requirements of AS 1926.1–1993.

Pools installed on or after 5 November 2001 are required to have:

  • gates that are self-closing and swing away from the pool

  • no door openings into the pool enclosure area.
